WFT opens training camp tomorrow in Richmond.
And from July 28 to July 31, WFT fans who are not already vaccinated with at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will have the opportunity to do so at the camp’s mobile vaccination clinic, and be entered into a promotional giveaway.
Those who choose to get vaccinated at the site will have their names entered into a raffle for a chance to win two free tickets and parking passes to this year’s opening game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Two days of the camp will also be dedicated to celebrating frontline healthcare workers.
On July 27, the team will welcome approximately 100 healthcare professionals to compete against WFT alumni by performing in the same athletic tests that NFL prospects complete before being drafted. Participants will see how they compare to current players in a 40-yard dash, a 20-yard shuttle, a cone drill, a high jump and a long jump.
On July 28, another 100 healthcare workers will receive a “VIP experience” during the first morning practice of the camp, as noted in a press release. Additionally, any spectator who shows proof that they are registered healthcare professional will receive a 20% discount at the team store.
WFT training camp practice sessions are open to the public free of charge. Gates remain open each day at the following times:
Wednesday, July 28 Gates open 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.; 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Thursday, July 29 Gates open 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.; 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
